Eisenhower Concedes Red
Charge Accurate In Part
WASHINGTON, May 7 UP) A statement by President Eisenhower
and released by the State Department in effect conceded the accuray
of much of Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev's charge that a plane
shot down in Russia last Sunday was on a spy mission.
State Department officials privately said that this was the mean
ing of the statement although it was not intended to admit every
detail, of what Khrushchev aleged.
The statement blasted Soviet Iron Curtain secrecy and the
"danger of surprise attack" which it said this creates in the world
then said that "unarmed civilian U2 aircraft have made flights along
the frontiers of the free world for the past four years" because of
Officials declared they were not able to say whether any of
these previous flight had crossed the Soviet border.
The statement was issued at the State Department by press officer
Lincoln White. It declared that there was no authorization from any
authority in Washington "for any such flight as described by Mr.
It then said:
"Nevertheless, it appears that in endeavoring to obtain informa
tion now concealed behind the Iron Curtain, a flight over Soviet ter
ritory was probably undertaken by an unarmed civilian U2 plane.''
That is the type of single engine high-flying iet aircraft which
Khrushchev announced was shot down by a Soviet rocket near Sverd
lovsk in central Russia last Sunday.
Khrushchev reported today that the pilot, 30-year-old Francis G.
Powers, was captured after he bailed out and might be brought to
Khrushchev said Powers was flying from a base in Pakistan across
the width of the Soviet Union to a base in Norway for the purpose
of taking pictures of Soviet defense installations.
